Lyric Music & More: May 26 May 26, 2020

We may be getting a little stir-crazy at home, but at least we don’t have statues coming to life and singing to us like Don Giovanni. This week, enjoy an extended clip from the closing scene of Lyric’s 2019 production of Don Giovanni, starring Lucas Meachem in the title role and Mika Kares as the reanimated Commendatore.

Then, get excited for everyone’s favorite season with a look at the classic American song “Summertime” through the years, hear from Lyric’s own dramaturg Roger Pines, load up your Netflix queue with the top 10 uses of classical music in film, and read about the life of a ballet mistress.

      

      

     

     

One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
